McLean’s Signature Addiction Recovery Programs are residential rehab programs with a focus on treating individuals with serious substance use conditions, many of whom will have co-occurring psychiatric conditions including depression, anxiety, trauma, or personality disorders.
Family involvement is strongly recommended. With permission of the patient, family members can be involved in assessment and in treatment/aftercare planning.
At Fernside, smoking is allowed in designated outdoor areas only. No smoking is allowed inside any of our buildings.
Borden Cottage is a tobacco-free campus. The program provides nicotine replacement therapy for individuals who are regular smokers and also offers smoking cessation support for those who wish to begin recovery from tobacco addiction while at the program.
At Fernside, visiting hours are noon to 8pm on weekends, and other hours as arranged.
At Borden Cottage, visiting hours are in the late afternoon and evening on weekends, in consultation with the treatment team.
Individuals are allowed to hold and use their cell phones and computers, with some guidelines to prevent disruption of the program and other patients.
In addition to individual and group therapy at the Signature Addiction Recovery Programs, attendance of AA and other self-help groups is strongly encouraged.
Privacy is of the utmost importance to the Signature Addiction Recovery Programs, and we ensure confidentiality through our highly trained, professional, and discreet staff. No third party, whether known to the patient or not, has access to medical records, health information, or any information about a patient’s stay without prior written authorization from the patient.
From helpful online resources to self-help groups and more, McLean Hospital is committed to providing support and mental health education to aid patients and families on the path to recovery.
The treatment team works closely with the individual as well as with family, significant friends, and outside providers to develop a personalized aftercare plan. Recommendations by staff are made based upon clinical needs, progress made during treatment, and long-term treatment goals.
All requests for medical records should be directed to McLean’s Health Information Management Department.
To complement our programs’ services and encourage individuals’ initiatives in their own recovery, many self-help groups are hosted by McLean, including Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and SMART Recovery.
McLean is dedicated to maintaining high-quality and effective patient care. To ensure that those standards remain at the highest level, we utilize a number of feedback instruments and quality indicators.
Among these tools are the Perceptions of Care survey which monitors patient satisfaction and BASIS-24™, a psychiatric outcomes measurement tool created at McLean and widely used in the US and around the world, which delivers feedback on the patient care experience.
